Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser invites bike riders of all ability levels to participate in the 10th Annual Fall Wheel Ride to Petrifying Springs Park from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 28.
“It will be a great day to trade four wheels for two and see Kenosha County from the seat of a bicycle,” Kreuser said.
Riders are encouraged to select one of two starting points:
- 9 a.m. at Pennoyer Park, 3607 Seventh Ave. – 5.3 miles (one way) to Petrifying Springs (Those joining the ride here and arriving by vehicle are urged to park in the lot north of the bandshell or in the street along Seventh Avenue; the other Pennoyer Park lots will be closed for a separate event.)
- 9:30 a.m. at Bose Elementary School, 1900 15th St. – 2.5 miles (one way) to Petrifying Springs
Marked routes will take riders to the Petrifying Springs Biergarten, utilizing segments of Kenosha County’s multiuse trail system for much of the way.
Food and non-alcoholic refreshments will be provided for riders by the Kenosha County Division of Parks in collaboration with the Petrifying Springs Biergarten.
